Creating a new schedule

The Downtime Scheduler provides you with the option to schedule a time period for which monitoring can be paused. You can choose between time periods of recurrence - Daily, Weekly or Once.  You can add a new Schedule and view it from the Admin tab. Follow the given steps to add a schedule:

  • Click Add New. It takes you to 'New Schedule' page.

  • Enter the Task Name.
  • Enter the Description of the Task.
  • By default, the Status would be 'Enable'.
  • Under Recurrence Details, choose the time period for which monitoring is not needed. The schedule can be Daily, Weekly or Once. (You can use the Edit option to modify the time period later.)
  • By checking the Select Timezone checkbox you can select the required timezone from the drop-down list.
  • Set the Start and Completion time.
  • In the Monitors Details table, you can associate the downtime scheduler task to your monitors and process monitors for which monitoring is not needed. You can either associate the task to the existing list of monitors listed or to the monitor groups available. Select the Monitors for which monitoring is not needed. On saving, the chosen Monitors would have their Maintenance Tasks scheduled.
Note: If you want to add downtime schedules for processes and/or Windows services, you should select the Enable downtime scheduling for processes/Windows Services option under 'Downtime Scheduler Settings' tab.
